New Home Construction Phase Inspection Program
The building of a home is critical at every step. Having an ITI® certified building inspector present at each step of this process is also critical. While most contractors are very good at what they do, it is imperative to have another set of eyes with to verify the decisions that they have to make and the execution
The A-Pro New Construction Phase Inspections Program consist of three (3) inspections for the home buyer.
For all new construction phase inspections, it is important to get an idea from the builder a date that they anticipate the building will be ready for each phase of the inspection – as soon as the date is given, notify us immediately.
The foundation inspection is the one of the most important and one of the most difficult to schedule. Builders can easily get ahead of schedule or fall behind of the initial schedule due to weather amongst other problems. We recommend that the home-buyer constantly check with builder about progress.
This phase of the inspection is done which involves inspecting the electrical, plumbing, heat, and framing. We usually perform this inspection one to three days before the contractor hangs the drywall. Note: All other inspections above must be performed before this phase.
This phase of the inspection is done after the building process is finish. This is when buyer has a walk-thru inspection with the builder about a week or so before the closing of the home takes place. We need to come out 1 to 3 days before this walk-thru. At this time, we perform a complete 500-point comprehensive home inspection with pictures of any problems so the client still has time to address any issues with the builder before closing takes place. At this time, we can also schedule additional services (i.e., foundation level survey, radon testing, etc.).
Having A-Pro on your side during the final walk thru Inspection is a wise decision. A final walk-through is executed a few hours to five days before closing. It is not a home inspection nor is it a time to begin negotiating repairs. The primary purpose of the final walk thru inspection is to make sure that the property is in the agreed upon condition you agreed to buy it in. (agreed-upon repairs/improvements, if any, were made satisfactory) Many clients re-hire us to conduct the walk thru after our initial home inspection when there were changes, repairs or improvements negotiated in order to come to a purchase agreement.
